Ole Hanson's Vision of San Clemente - 1925

"I vision a place where people can live together more pleasantly than any other place in America.

I am going to build a beautiful city on the ocean where the city will be one great park; the architecture will be of all one type, and the homes will be located on sites where nearly everyone will have his wonderful view preserved forever. The whole picture is very clear before me. I can see hundreds of white walled homes bonneted with red tile, with trees, shrubs, hedges of hibiscus, palms, and geraniums lining the drives, and a profusion of flowers framing the patios and gardens. I can see gay sidewalks of red Spanish tile and streets curving picturesquely over the land. I want plazas, playgrounds, schools, clubs, swimming pools, a golf course, a fishing pier and a beach enlivened by people getting a healthy joy out of their life."

I do not want people repulsed and sent away by an ugliness..as they have been by the ugliness in other communities...I have a clean canvas and I am determined to paint a clean picture."
